While you will never see a trillion dollars in person (nature's way of protecting your sanity amidst the bailout), computers can do the job without breaking a sweat—or worrying about retirement.

This particular rendering was made through Google SketchUp, Google's 3D modeling software. Measurements were taken of a $10,000 stack of $100 bills (just half an inch thick!) and pretty much multiplied from there using simple geometry. In that trillion dollar shot, each pallet holds $100 million...and the pallets are double stacked.

As for that red blob on the left? It's a human.

If Jesus Christ were still alive today, and he spent $1million every day for 2000 years or so, that still wouldn't be a trillion dollars.
